1933 R300 George C. Miller PSA-Graded Collection (17)
Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $19,975
Outstanding collection of seventeen cards (including fourteen different of the thirty-two in the set) from the R300 George C. Miller & Company set, one of the most unusual and rare issues of the 1930s, and one of the most artistically unique sets of any era. The collection is highlighted by eight Hall of Famers including Jimmy Foxx and the Ivy Andrews card (one of the true rarities in all of card collecting). This is an incredibly substantial group of R300. Cards from this set usually have to be collected one at a time due to their extreme rarity. Large groups are almost never seen. This partial set represents a very significant opportunity for collectors interested in completing this elusive issue, which has been an almost impossible feat for so many serious collectors in the past, especially because of the extremely rare Ivy Andrews redemption card. Only a few complete sets of R300 have ever been assembled. The seventeen cards (14 different) represent nearly half of the set. All seventeen cards have been graded by PSA: Two EX 5: Melillo, L. Waner (HOF). Ten VG-EX 4: W. Ferrell, Foxx (HOF), two Gehringer (HOF, one is graded VG-EX+ 4.5), two Grimm, Maranville (HOF), O’Doul, Simmons (HOF), Terry (HOF). One VG 3: Frisch (HOF). Two GOOD 2: Bartell, Dickey (HOF). Two Authentic: Andrews (Aside from the cancellation clipping, the card is in Excellent condition. The colors are vivid, and the card has virtually flawless registration) and Bartell (slight trim, otherwise NM). This is a tremendous collection of cards from one of the rarest and most artistically stunning sets ever issued. The SMR value for just 15 of the 17 cards (not including the Andrews and Bartell cards) is $9,370. From the Charlie Conlon Collection. Total 17 cards. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+. SOLD FOR $19,975
